There’s an NLP strategy that can help you eliminate social anxiety.
Get rid of any kind of worry about what to say or do.
It’s based on our ancient storytelling instinct.
Stories give us access to role models far better than the ones in real life.
Tribes that told rich stories to one another survived much more effectively than those who didn’t.
Imagine a young hunter seeing a potential kill.
One that would make him an instant hero and maybe even get him some sex.
Consider two variations of this scenario.
One is just him and the animal.
Scary as hell.
Another is where he really and truly believes one of his heroes, or gods is there with him.
Giving him advice and encouragement.
From a purely neurological standpoint, this might be a way to keep part of his brain inoculated from the fear.
To give him useful hunting advice.
To improve his success.
Now, the hero is a metaphor.
But this metaphor also helps him.
Even if the metaphor is not true, it’s the BELIEF in the metaphor that helps him.
The belief that helps him to remember the best strategy and to say calm.
This same structure can be uses in social situations.
It’s not automatic, but it can be built.
To create a whole collection of archetypes.
To help you whenever you need them.
To tell you what to say, to remind you that there are ALWAYS plenty of ladies out there.
Your brain is already pre-configured for this kind of thing.
We wouldn’t have a kajillion dollar entertainment industry if it wasn’t.
It’s just something you need to build.
Figure out a couple of imaginary people you WOULD like to have your back in otherwise scary social situations.
And practice building a relationship with them AS IF they were real.
Not much different from all the billions of people since the dawn of time who prayed to all the different gods.
This is just a do-it-yourself version.
Once you unleash your metaphorical powers, it will be a lot of fun to interact socially.
Playfully and experimentally.
To say things on the spot spur of the moment that are memorable.
Funny, witty, however you want to be perceived.
To all those interesting people you see on a daily basis.
To create your own, custom built, safety in numbers.
Just don’t do anything goofy like scream, “VALHALLA!” before you make an approach.
